Prof. Kishore's research interests are in communications theory, networks, and signal processing, with application to wireless communications, smart grid systems, and ocean wave energy conversion. In the area of wireless communication systems, her interests are in tiered network design, network coding and cognitive radio networks. In the area of smart grid systems, she studies the design of grid communication systems, demand response control mechanisms, and energy management systems. And in the area of ocean wave energy conversion, her research examines the deployment and cyber control of arrays of ocean wave energy converters. Her research has been published in leading IEEE journals and conference proceedings and has been funded by the NSF, state agencies and several major corporations.

Prior to her appointment to the Lehigh faculty, Kishore held numerous internships at AT&T, Bell Labs, and AT&T Labs-Research. She is the recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, the P.C. Rossin Assistant Professorship, and the AT&T Labs Fellowship Award. She has also served as a Kavli Fellow for the National Academy of the Sciences.
